Paisley's All-time Liverpool XI

In my lifetime of football experience with Liverpool, I have played with, treated, coached and managed a host of great players and it has always been a temptation for me - and others - to choose my best all-time team. I now succumb to the temptation and commit this 4-2-4 line-up to print:

        

       Ray Clemence                       Phil Neal                        Mark Lawrenson

           

        Ron Yeats                       Emlyn Hughes                      Kenny Dalglish

         

    Graeme Souness                   Ian Callaghan                   Kevin Keegan

       

          Roger Hunt                       Billy Liddell                      Ian St John (sub)

Sir Bob quote

"Bob Paisley was a clever man in every shape and form. He led me to believe I was playing with the reserves on Friday against Everton reserves at Anfield. So my boots were put out with theirs. He got Tom Saunders to come to my digs near Melwood, pick me up 11 o'clock. We went to Anfield and I picked my boots up and I went to Everton through Stanley Park with my boots under my arm. As soon as I got into the dressing room at Goodison Park where Liverpool's first team was due to play Everton, Bob just said: 'Get ready to play, son.' And I thought, 'if you can face this, you can get through everything, 56,000 people shouting and bullying at you.'"
